How about knowing more about this subject?

Every time Rio de Janeiro’s public security gets on the news, the spectator’s impression is that of watching an immense “Seven errors game”. It is no secret that the state that once housed the country’s capital has a chronic problem with drug trafficking, which has dominated the region’s main communities and prisons for decades.
